Monitoring and backing up event logs with MOM

With MOM you can automate the following tasks:

– check event log free space on MOM agent computers

– backup the event logs to a remote share

I have attached the 2 scripts I used for this (modified well-known scripts from Scripting Center). I also attached a Management Pack AKM with rules that show how you can use the scripts.

IMPORTANT: Deploy this fix before you use the scripts if your MOM agents are running under LOCAL SYSTEM account:

This fix addresses an issue where the Local system account running the MOM host process was denied Backup privilege (even if you explicitly granted it to the Local System).


I hope you find this useful.
